In celebration of its 25th year, the Life Time Tri Boulder Peak Triathlon announced a new $25,000 relay competition in addition to the traditional International distance race.
‘Fastest Pros’ $25K Relay Competition
The nation’s fastest athletes will combine forces and descend upon Boulder in July for their shot at winning $25,000 – one of the world’s largest multisport relay purses. Top female and male relay teams will each earn $8,000, with payouts to the next two fastest teams of $3,000 and $1,500 respectively. This is an open competition, and each relay team must be comprised entirely of women or men. One person will represent each team within the swim, bike and run disciplines along the existing Boulder Peak course.
‘Average Joes’ $25 Relay
Also in celebration of 25 years of the Life Time Tri Boulder Peak, ‘Average Joe’s’ or all non-elite athletes, can form their own relay team and take part in the fun for as little as $25 each or $75 per team if they register before Friday, July 1, 2016. Average Joe relay teams may consist of two or three individuals of any gender, and assigned to one of 10 unique divisions including Families, Foodies, Breweries, etc. One person will represent each team within the swim, bike and run disciplines along the existing Boulder Peak course.
“The Boulder Peak Triathlon is such a legendary and iconic race that we wanted to do something exciting for its 25th year that pays homage to its rich history and also welcomes new athletes interested in triathlon,” says Gladys Cueto, Life Time Tri Boulder Peak Race Director. “Not only can the fastest pros in each discipline join forces in an exciting relay division but we’re also offering a great deal for all levels of athletes and single sport athletes to get involved in the relay division for just $75 per team. It’s going to be a day to remember for everyone.”
Following the awards ceremony, all participants will have their own shot at earning $25,000 in assorted prizes from Jaybird, Panasonic, Voler, 2017 race entries, gift cards and more. The traditional International distance triathlon along with the Olde Stage King/Queen of the Mountain Competition will be taking place in addition to the relay competition and registration is still open for athletes looking to compete as an individual in the legendary race.
Registration is currently open for both individuals and relay teams at Boulderpeaktri.com. The special rate of $75 per relay team is available until Friday, July 1, 2016. Early registration is encouraged for all divisions, as the race is expected to sell out.
